People In Climate Denial? Ramp Up The Fear Factor! Now With A Complete Moron

Proving once again that the issue is mostly, or totally, false

The Met Office has warned that if the world continues to burn fossil fuels at the current rate temperatures will rise above four degrees C in the next fifty years.

This will cause sea level rise, droughts, floods and mass collapse of eco-systems.

However Clive Hamilton, Professor of public ethics at the Australian National University, said the majority of the population is still in denial about the risks of climate change.

He compared the situation to the psychology of the British and German populations before the Second World War and said the only way to make people change their behaviour is to “ramp up the fear factor.”

Al Gore famously said “Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.” So, in order to push their agenda, lying is perfectly fine. It’s no wonder that

The great global warming scare is over — it is well past its peak, very much a spent force, sputtering in fits and starts to a whimpering end. You may not know this yet. Or rather, you may know it but don’t want to acknowledge it until every one else does, and that won’t happen until the press, much of which also knows it, formally acknowledges it.

I know that the global warming scare is over but for the shouting because that’s what the polls show, at least those in the U.S., where unlike Canada the public is polled extensively on global warming. Most Americans don’t blame humans for climate change — they consider global warming to be a natural phenomenon. Even when the polls showed the public believed man was responsible for global warming, the public didn’t take the scare seriously. When asked to rank global warming’s importance compared to numerous other concerns — unemployment, trade, health care, poverty, crime, and education among them — global warming came in dead last. Fewer than 1% chose global warming as scare-worthy.

When folks like the Met and The United Nations are pulling out scare tactics predicting a temperature rise of about 6.3 degrees F (despite key data and measurements being shown to be fraudlent,) you know they are worried that people are not buying their mule fritters. And well they shouldn’t, when the Obama’s little trip to Copenhagen used 8,379 tons of CO2

By comparison, the average American household has a carbon footprint of 19.5 tons of CO2 per year.

Therefore, President Obama’s two day trip deposited as much CO2 into the atmosphere as 430 American families do in an entire year.

Do as I say, not as I do.

Update: I really have to stop reading this massive idiots stuff on my feedreader, but, The Most Scientific Blogger On The Internet (as Brian Ledbetter calls him) has truly beclowned himself. He pulls out a Real Climate post, complains about Steve McIntyre and his supposed destroying of the hockey, calls McIntyre a liar, then

Again, I’m struck by the similarity between the techniques of global warming deniers and creationists; they both use cherry-picked data, they both make outrageous claims couched in pseudo-scientific language that sounds convincing to gullible people, they both compile lists of skeptical “scientists” that turn out to be packed with ringers, frauds, and people who never signed in the first place, and they both use quote mining.

And they’re often the very same people; National Review is a big promoter of the Discovery Institute’s creationist fables in addition to being a leading proponent of AGW denial.

This is what he calls “debunking the latest climate denial claim.” As usual, long on parabole, short on actual science and reality. Not surprising for someone who rarely writes anything beyond a quick header, then throws up and excerpt or video.

Now, first of all, Roger Pielke Jr, not exactly known as a massive climate denier (nor a True Believer,) tears that same Real Climate post apart for being personal and for lies. Oh, and look here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, among many, many, many links.

And, if Excitable Chucky wants to play the “linked to” game, Real Climate is linked to MoveOn.org through Betsy Ensley, the Tides Foundation, and is basically a front for all sorts of far left environmental extremists. Sucks to have one’s holier than thou shoved up one’s rear, eh, Chucky? Do us all a favor and stay well away from any type of science, and stick with posting your usual Beck, Creationist, and anything Republican derangement screeds, along with some jazz video’s.

    Teach are you mocking the US military for considering climate change to be a matter of national security ? They agree with Al Gore why not mention them ?

  3. John Ryan says:

    even Pat Robertson believes that global warming is real http://thinkprogress.org/2006/08/03/robertson-global-warming/

  4. […] buddy, William Teach at Pirate’s Cove writes about the environmental crazies ramping up the fear. My pal, John who lives in David, Panama […]

    Oh don’t worry. Even if they can’t get cap and trade passed this year, Obama has other ways to bring about the end of the world.

  6. Nice try, John, but that is a political decision at high levels, but, yes, I will mock anyone who plays that game, even the military. But, remember, I do not disagree that the climate has warmed, I disagree that it is mostly or solely Mankind’s fault, John.

    ROTLOL! That is perfect, TFMo! Definately going to be linked in the Patriotic Pinup today. Glad you commented, I thought I had added y’all to me feedreader.

  7. TFMo says:

    John, your argument is ridiculous. You imply that EVERY member of the military complex buys into AGW, from buck private to five star general, from the Weekend Warriors to the Marine Corps.

    Which is bull. Not even the scientific community has that kind of consensus. You base your argument off the statements of a couple of muckimucks in the Pentagon.

    Despite what the Gore Whores would have us believe, the temps have actually DROPPED in the past few years, due to unusually low sunspot activity. And I would love to hear how putting corn squeezin’s in my gas tank is going to affect a massive ball of gas nearly 100 million miles away.
